Knocked it Out of the Park!
The National Museum of Dance is a beautiful wedding venue! Bruce, the Weddings & Events Manager, was incredibly easy to work with and really took the stress out of this stressful time for us. He is full of wonderful suggestions for vendors and made sure our day was perfect from start to finish. I highly recommend the National Museum of Dance for weddings!Sent on 09/30/2020

Saved the day
First of all, if you’re even debating the MoD, you need to confirm your date already, and if you haven’t considered it yet, you need to! My (now) husband and I worked with Bruce C. who is the director of events for the MoD and he is extremely welcoming and compassionate—there is no better person for this job. Any question we had, Bruce answered. Any request or question, big or small, Bruce was accommodating and patient. My husband and I are so very thankful to the MoD and Bruce for everything, our wedding would not have been the same otherwise.Sent on 10/20/2019

The Dance Museum is the perfect location for small to mid-sized weddings. The hall's white walls are perfect for a wedding reception, and their staff are friendly, polite, and accommodating. Best of all, their location is in the heart of Saratoga Springs.
